NIP Wizard Responses
These were the responses used by the Wizard to arrive at its recommendation:
Have you received a NIP? - Yes
Are you the Registered Keeper of the vehicle concerned (is your name and address on the V5/V5C)? - No
Is the NIP addressed to you personally? - Yes
Although you are not the Registered Keeper, were you the keeper of the vehicle concerned (the person normally responsible for it) at the time of the alleged offence? - Yes
Were you driving? - Yes
Which country did the alleged offence take place in? - England

NIP Wizard Recommendation
Based on these responses the Wizard suggested that this course of action should be considered:
  • The law requires you to provide the information requested in the Section 172 notice within the 28 day period, naming yourself as the driver. If you are considering obtaining formal legal advice, do so before returning the notice.

    You should note that there is nothing to be gained by responding any earlier than you have to at any stage of the process. You are likely to receive a Conditional Offer of a Fixed Penalty (COFP) and further reminder(s). If you want to continue the fight, you should ignore all correspondence from the police until you receive a summons. You need to understand from the outset that while you will receive much help and support from members on the forums, you will need to put time and effort into fighting your case and ultimately be prepared to stand up in court to defend yourself.

I have already filled out the NIP but after reading things on here, just wondered if anyone could tell me where i stand on the Date of the offence to the date of the NIP, could i get off with it?

Also, whats my punishment likley to be?

Anyone, help please.


The NIP has to get to the registered keeper within 14 days which according to the info above is not you, there's no restrictions after that on delivering the NIP itself.

Also, whats my punishment likley to be? point/fine?

An alleged 46mph in a 30mph limit would ordinarily qualify to be dealt with by Conditional Offer of Fixed Penalty - £60 and 3 points.
